Original event synopsis

Wardrobe can help convey a large part of a character's back story. Proper use of costume accessories can make shot continuity easier. Effective use of costumes does not need to be costly.

Come learn what a costume designer can do for your production. These include mapping a characters time and place, maintaining continuity on set, and preserving materials for possible pickup shots in post production. Included will be live examples and video clips to see how these ideas can be realized.
